Everyone here at This Is My Story podcast was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of the great Marius Zaliukas yesterday (Sat 31st Oct 2020). Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

Marius was a true captain of Hearts in every sense of the word and we all have fond memories of him during his time with The Famous. He played in over 200 competitive matches for us and scored 15 goals between 2006 and 2013.

While none of us on the show knew the big skipper personally we think it is only fitting that we take time to reflect on his contribution to the club over the seven years he was with us. We will therefore record a tribute show in the coming week.

For now all we can say is a massive thank you from ourselves and every Hearts fan across the world for your services to the club. Farewell, captain Zal.
